Charity Highlight

We love chucking paint and making people smile, but we also think it is important to give back. As a for profit company, we are excited we have the opportunity to partner with charities and help shine a light on their extraordinary work within society.

We are thrilled to be working with Step Out San Jose to benefit the American Diabetes Association.


Nearly 29 million children and adults in the United States are living with diabetes — and one in four of them don’t even know it! The American Diabetes Association is the nation’s leading non-profit health organization providing diabetes research, information and advocacy. Join Step Out San Jose Walk to Stop Diabetes on October 7, 2017 in downtown San Jose! As the Association’s signature fundraising walk, the event raises funds for research, advocacy, programs and education.

Two words. Unicorn Medal. I am already registered!
The Color Run is when fantasy becomes reality. Dreams will come true.
2017 is going to be even more fun than before! I can’t wait until The Color Run hits my city!
I had a blast playing in the foam with my kids – I may have been more excited than they were!
